Thread: Venison Liver "Estonian Stylee"

  1. #1

    Venison Liver "Estonian Stylee"

    When I went on a shooting trip to Estonia afew years ago I was served up the liver of the wild boar I shot and I liked it so much I asked the chef what he'd done with it. As I didn't have quite all the ingredients to hand for my muntjac liver the other day I substituted a couple of bits and still came out with a very nice dish. Here goes, to serve 2.
    Ingredients:
    Venison liver x 1/2
    Paprika
    Mushrooms
    Creme Fraiche
    1x onion
    2x cloves garlick
    Olive oil for frying.
    Chicken gravy granules
    Method:
    Finely chop the onion, and slice or chop the mushrooms.
    Crush and chop the galick cloves
    Cut the liver into fairly thin strips.
    Make up about 1/4 pint of chicken gravy.
    Put the olive oil in a frying pan and heat until at frying temperature. Add the onions and garlick to the pan and fry until the onions are just starting to colour.
    Add the strips of liver, and a good dose of paprika.
    Fry until the liver is almost cooked and then add the mushrooms and chicken gravy.
    Simmer until the mushrooms are cooked and the gravy has thickened a bit before adding about 2 teaspoons of creme fraich and allowing the sauce to heat up again but not boil.
    Serve with chips or diced, deep fried potatoes
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    Harry was that your "tweeked" recipe or was it the one the chef gave you? Either way can you put up the Chef one too please?

    Tweaks

    The recipe as posted is the "tweaked" version. The original used fresh cream instead of creme fraich, and proper chicken stock instead of the gravy granules.
    Amir, glad you liked the recipe.
    The chef also gave me a recipe for heart, but I can't remember what went in to it, although the above recipe does work equally well with heart.

    think there is a receipe in my hugh fearnley meat book for "deviled kidneys"

    4 x kidneys cut into quarterswith whitish core trimmed out
    a little fat or oil ( sunflower or oil )
    1 small glass of sherry
    1 tablespoon whitewine vinegar or cider vinegar
    1 teaspoon redcurrant jelly
    few goodshakes of worcestershire sauce
    good pinch o cayenne pepper
    1 tablespoon english mustard
    1 tablespoon double cream
    salt and black pepper
    bit o chopped parsley to garnish

    heat the oil in a wee pan and add the kidneys, sizzle for just a minute to brown, keep em moving.
    add the sheery let it bubble then follow up with more modest splash of wine or cider vinegar
    add the redcurrant jelly and stir to dissolve
    now add the worcestershire sauce and cayenne pepper mustard and plenty of black pepper.
    season with salt now add the cream and bubble for a minute or twountill sauce is nice n "glossy"
    taste and add more cayenne or pepper if you need a bigger hit.
    serve with fried breadto give crunch and mop up the sauce or for main maeal serve with rice

    sorry for hijacking the thread
